I have a number of items but only two that I am excited

Customer Question
I have a number...

I have a number of items but only two that I am excited about that were presumably made at Canadian Porcelain in Hamilton. They are being used as huge plant pots. They are round, diameter 13 inches, height 131/2 inches, colour red/brown, extremely heavy. My grandfather worked at the factory for more than 25 years and died of silicosis as I am sure many of the men did.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

There are two, both are slightly narrower at the base. They are glazed inside and out.
